`HOMELAND’ STAR JOKES ABOUT PLAYING HOUSE
Married actor Damian Lewis joked to reporters that he might be doing some extra celebrating with “Homeland” co-star Claire Danes, who is also married and came to the Emmys with a baby bump.
“We’re going away to a romantic island together,” the red-headed British actor joked. “When that baby is ginger you guys are going to have a field day.”
The comment may have gotten some members of the press too excited, one of whom asked Danes a few moments later how she viewed the win in light of giving birth.
“Thank god I am not giving birth,” said Danes, who’s in an earlier stage of pregnancy.
The pair reunited later in another backstage area, looking very platonic and like two friends enjoying each other’s success.

KIMMEL EVENS THE SCORE
Don’t ever cross Jimmy Kimmel.
The Emmy host warmly introduced his parents, who were seated in the audience, and told viewers they had always been supportive of their son.
“They always told me I could do anything I set my mind to,” he said, “and this year I set my mind to winning the Emmy.
“And guess what? I didn’t,” he went on. “You told me I could, and I didn’t, and I’m devastated. You lied to me!”
Egged on by Tracy Morgan, who was seated beside them and stated, “I don’t trust them,” Kimmel summoned security to remove Mom and Dad from the auditorium.
